Anyway... We've been letting her learn to use the spoon. Its been reeaaallly messy, but fun. Here's a fun new video of Mia using the spoon for the first time.
We have to spell "H-A-I-R" because if you say the word, she automatically touches her hair.
Oh, and yes, she did get some in her hair. Though, not as much as I expected.

Here are the words she can say now:
Dada, dog, down, choo-choo, juice (which is strange, cause she rarely gets juice), cheese, shoes, tree, truck, Granddad, church, stick, and can make an elephant sound. Though it sounds like she's blowing raspberries, but that's not the point.
* Edited to add -- Duck! How could I forget duck?
Did I miss any?
Strangely, she won't say Mama, eat, or drink. The three words that would be most helpful.

We had a fabulous time. Mia had more fun opening her presents this year (as opposed to last year, when she either slept or cried, lol) and she had so much fun hanging out with everyone. Mark and I have been so blessed with amazing family and friends who made this Christmas amazing. Possibly the best ever.
We talked a lot this year about how amazing Christmas is. Usually, Easter is the more focused-on Christian holiday. As it should be, given that's when Jesus died for us. But really... look at what happened at Christmas. A virgin birth. Mary not being stoned for being in her "condition." The King of Kings being born in a manger... showing that he's the "every man" king. Being rescued from a maniac king. A star shining brightly, leading Magi to the manger. Shepherds being greeted by angels. Talk about miracles. You can't write a story like that. You know its God working when so many miracles come together at once. It always makes me marvel at the awesomeness of God.
But anyway... on to what you really came here for -- Pictures!
(dude, if you only knew how hard it was to choose only a handful...)
Grammy & her girls
Chillin' at Momo's. Best seat in the house (she's not spoiled at all, is she?).
The girls at Nonnie & Granddad's. Abby and I didn't get the memo as to which camera to look.
Mia is just about done...
Mia caught her second wind (or third, or fourth).
Wee! A butterfly! In a book! It doesn't get much better than that.
Yay! Plastic fruit! Can you open this, please?
Rubber ducks are the best!
The hippo laughs! Just like me! That's the funniest thing I've seen all day!
Forget the ABC book... look I have paper!
Heh, a Zebra that bounces and spins! Fun!
Christmas is the best ever!
